Official Trailer for Jane Campion's Cannes Hit Bright Star
Pathe and BBC Films have debuted the official trailer for Jane Campion's Bright Star on Yahoo today. Bright Star is a slow-moving period romance about poet John Keats, played by Ben Whishaw, who falls in love with Fanny Brawne, played by Abbie Cornish. This had its world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival back in May and received quite an enthusiastic response from critics. However, I was not a big fan of it at all, it was just too boring for me. Even though this trailer is very well put together and the photography looks gorgeous, I still have no interest in seeing it again. But other cinephiles might enjoy it, so check it!
